This amazing Crete Sailing Family Day Tour including Culinary Experience is perfect for a family looking for a relaxing day with a difference. It starts from Heraklion, the largest city of Crete. From the moment you step on board the yacht, you will feel your cares slip away. The crew will take care of all your needs as they set sail to a quiet, peaceful cove, and the kids will love seeing how a sailing boat is operated.
After anchoring in a sheltered area, there is plenty of time for everyone to enjoy diving and swimming in the clear, still waters. There is snorkeling equipment on board which all the family can use.
In the meantime, the chef will prepare your culinary delights, which include local produce, delicacies, and specialties. The menu varies depending on the time of year, but you might expect fresh fish, dakos, pasta, home-made bread, and olives. This will be a true Greek feast, where you will be encouraged to try everything, including some fine local wines.
Once the meal is over, there is more time to relax and enjoy the sun and water. Then, as the evening approaches, the boat will set sail back to Heraklion, and on occasion dolphins may surf the waves by the side. This Crete Sailing Family Day Tour including Culinary Experience will give you an extraordinary, fun-filled and memorable experience that all the family will remember for a long time to come.
